Is the problem, perhaps, because of the differences between apt and
aptitude?  I ran into the same problem when I first started using

What I did was to go into the interactive aptitude, deselected those
packages I didn't want removed and installed the package I wanted. 
When aptitude was finished installing the package, it had created
its own database and all went well after that point.  

We are furious that the religious right has made Jesus into a
Republican. That's idolatry. To recreate Jesus in your own image
rather than allowing yourself to be created in Jesus' image is
what's wrong with politics.
